    SueY,

    We had a similar problem with postal carriers walking through our yard and squeezing between shrubs to get to our neighbor’s house; we even put caution tape up in our yard to prevent them walking through while we were trying to grow plant material in our courtyard green joints, all to no avail. We even had one gal do the limbo under the tape to cut through the yard and when I confronted her about it she started to walk back over the newly planted area ….

    Bottom line, after researching on USPS website, postal workers are allowed to walk through your yard. If you don’t want them to do so you need to put it in writing and submit to the post office. Or you could just try to talk to them, but that won’t stop replacements from walking through your yard….

    Can’t say enough about Stacie Yale at Courtesy Accounting. We have used her for years for both our personal and business returns and, compared to some tax accountants that bill like lawyers with varying rates for everyone in the office that can possibly touch your return, Stacie’s rates are fair and reasonable for the personalized service you get. We also used to use H&R Block and had a horrible experience with them. Courtesy Accounting is in the Junction on California right across from the post office.

    Mountain to Sound Outfitters on Alaska SW have rentals and can probably recommend some places to go this season as I don’t think the sno-parks around Snoqualmie have much accumulation.

    Uwajimaya usually has them in early spring. Had a wonderful dish with them prepped as CM described but with morel mushrooms in the mix and some shaved Parmesan on top, delicious!

    Maybe something along these lines will help with tree, bird netting around planters or Vaseline?

    If you can approach it try to put a towel gently over it and then scoop up into box. We had a jay with a rat trap stuck on his tail and used this method to capture and remove the trap and he flew away happy. Good luck.

    Homer,

    Could be due to any of the following: too much nitrogen in fertilizer, too much water and poor drainage, overcrowding and needing to be divided, root rot or a virus, competion from tree roots or other plants.

    Costanza,

    I believe they charge about $45 per hour, while probably not the least expensive, they are very much in line with other landscape professionals we work with. I would highly encourage you to check out their website and blog and contact Diana or Pat with any questions you may have regarding your specific needs.

    Can’t say enough about Stacy Yale at Courtesy Accounting, she has done our business and personal taxes for years and is great to work with with very reasonable rates, unlike some other CPAs located near them that charge ungodly fees for every 15 minutes and have varying rates for everyone in their office that touches your return. Located on California across from Post office.

    I’m not sure but it may have something to do with local media rebroadcasting from the national media, so that would explain Q13 lag time versus what someone in Hawaii was seeing from direct national feed. I know when I was watching Seahawks game a few months ago on q13 and husband was in another room watching on national feed there was a delay between the two….

    You cannot just open a topic soliciting customers or posting a “rave” about your own business. Thanks very much to those who spot those quickly and report them. This site is a commercial, advertiser-supported business – just like a commercial newspaper, TV station, radio station, etc. – and if you are interested in advertising your business on WSB, that information is available here:

    https://westseattleblog.com/blog/?page_id=4002

    Added 9/17/09 for EXTRA emphasis: A “for rent” or “for sale” housing ad IS advertising and falls under the aforementioned rules.

    Added 5/30/2010 for clarification: Freebies/deals/sales that you want to post here must be available to everyone – no prequalification such as “mention you read it on WSB” or “offering this if you (whatever).”

    I think the UPS store and Staples do, call them first to be sure. If not there is a Seattle helpline that can tell you where to go to recycle them, just google recycling styrofoam peanuts.
